FASHION designer Roberto Cavalli has become a dad for the sixth time – at the age of 82.
The Italian, thought to be worth more than £400million, is having a baby boy with Swedish model girlfriend Sandra Nilsson, 37.

Roberto already knows a thing or two about children – he has five from two previous marriages.
The fashion guru, whose clothes are beloved by wealthy stars including Kim Kardashian, revealed the happy news to an Italian journalist.
The fashion industry legend explained they would be calling the new arrival Giorgio, in tribute to his father who was shot by Nazis during the Second World War.
He told magazine Novella 2000: “Sandra is doing fine.
“The baby, who was born a week ago right here in Florence, is beautiful and it was really emotional to see him right after he was born.
“His name is Giorgio, like his grandfather, my father… whom the Nazis shot in the Cavriglia massacre when I was four years old.”
Roberto has children Tommaso and Cristina from his first marriage to Silvanella Giannoni, who he married in 1964 before they divorced ten years later.
He also has Robert, Rachele and Daniele from his second marriage to Eva Maria Duringer.
Roberto has been dating model Sandra, who he was once reported to have bought a private island for, since 2014.
She was given the £2.2 million Stora Rullingen off the coast of Strängnäs, east of Stockholm, according to the Mail.
The 81.5-acre island comes with a four-bedroom villa, hunting lodge, pool, golf course and the remains of a Viking hill fort.
Sandra was a competitor on Scandinavia’s Top Model and won several beauty contests including Swedish Miss Hawaiian Tropic.
The star was Playboy magazine’s Playmate of the Month in January 2008.
Roberto has long spoken about his rough upbringing following the murder of his father, which left him mute until the age of 18.
He said previously: “My father was shot by the Germans in July 1944, in a raid on Castelnuovo dei Sabbioni.
“He was a surveyor, he worked for a mine in the Valdarno… I didn’t speak until 18. But life has been kind to me [and I have been] rewarded… for everything.”
